    The best answer would be (B) trust in government.

    Explanation:

    High levels of partisanship between the Republican and the Democrats, which are commonly populated by elite members of the society, are creating a growing distrust in American citizens over whether these parties are actually addressing their concerns. This, alongside several government scandals, such as the NSA disclosure in 2013, is causing the rise of public distrust towards the government.

    Though this belief has been documented prior to 2016, only during this year (and subsequent ones) are anti-establishment candidates getting more attention due to the growing support they are having from this voter base, especially with the election of President Donald Trump. This support for anti-establishment candidates are partly caused by this rising distrust of government institutions.
